Share this article

In a bid to help inflation-affected workers and families, the government of British Columbia (Canada) has announced that the minimum wage is expected to increase to CA$15.65 per hour on June 1.

According to a report, the BC Fair Wages Commission looked at the possibility of tying the minimum wage to the inflation rate and have suggested an inflationary increase of almost 3%.

The minimum wage for BC is currently CA$15.20 for an hour, an increase of 4.1%  from June 2020. The minimum wage increased 5.4% between June 2019 and June 2020 and 9.5% from June 2018 to June 2019.

According to the BC government’s press release, the upcoming minimum wage hike is the first one to be tied to the province’s average annual inflation rate.

The 2.8% rate was calculated from January 1 to December 31, 2021. 

As of June 1, an increase of 2.8% will also apply to the live-in camp leader, live-in home support worker minimum daily wages, and resident caretaker minimum monthly wage.
